Census 2020 Grant Opportunities

Census 2020 Grant Opportunities

One Voice Central Texas is committed to ensuring a complete and accurate count of all individuals during the 2020 Census. To that end, we would like to spotlight two important  opportunities for local organizations to get involved and provide on-the-ground census public education. Applications are due for both opportunities by Monday, November 11th. 

  • United Way for Greater Austin is seeking to award up to 30 one-time project grants of $5,000 to $20,000 each to qualified community organizations and Complete Count Committees to conduct get-out-the-count efforts for the 2020 Census targeting hard-to-count communities in five Central Texas counties (Bastrop, Caldwell, Hays, Travis, and Williamson). In total, United Way ATX will award a minimum of $300,000 for this work.

    To minimize the undercount, United Way ATX is seeking proposals in two categories:

    1. Grassroots Organizations and Service Providers: United Way ATX seeks proposals from organizations with existing ties to hard-to-count communities in Bastrop, Caldwell, Hays, Travis, and/or Williamson counties to conduct boots-on-the-ground get-out-the-count activities.
    2. Complete Count Committees: United Way ATX seeks proposals from official Complete Count Committees in Bastrop, Caldwell, Hays, Travis, or Williamson counties to conduct and/or coordinate get-out-the-count activities with specific focus on targeting hard-to-count population.
